Rollins College is hosting the annual Fox Fest outdoor concert next month to celebrate the 70th birthday of the school's radio station, WPRK 91.5-FM.
WPRK, aka the “voice of Rollins College'' (or "the best in basement radio" for those who've been listening for a while) has been broadcasting music and community programming since 1952. The student-run radio station is holding their annual Fox Fest on Bush Lawn at Rollins College with a stacked lineup of local and regional musicians.
Fox Fest — named for the annual Rollins "Fox Day" tradition in which a fox statue appears somewhere on campus signaling classes are canceled for the day — has run for years as a free celebration for students and the community at large.
This year's lineup includes WPRK "Whatever Wednesday" host DJ V, hyper-pop artist Anthony Argos, Orlando's Twin Suns and Miami dream-pop band Palomino Blond. Multi-platinum (and Florida-based!) multi-instrumentalist and producer Kaelin Ellis will headline.
Local food trucks and vendors are also set to post up at the event, with a little something for everyone. Some of the vendors include Kickbright Shop & Buttons, Wrigglebrew, Jeff Goldblum Art and handmade jewelry from always4ever.
Fox Fest is free for Rollins student and staff and costs the rest of us $10. It all goes down on Saturday, Nov. 5, starting at 6 p.m. You can snag a ticket in advance from Eventbrite.
